The event has taken place at a local restaurant for years. Last year, it moved to Ascarate Park and this year, it's on to the Coliseum!

The Great American Rockabilly Riot was started by the folks from ... and held at ... the original Great American Land & Cattle Company Steakhouse on Alabama for several years. Eventually, it outgrew the restaurant's parking lot and organizers moved it to Ascarate Park. Now, it's taking another big step as the 2017 Rockabilly Riot moves to the El Paso County Coliseum.

Sorry About Your Sister, Fixed Idea, The Paladins and many other bands, including headliners Tiger Army, will rock the party. On top of that, there will be a 1950's style pinup girl contest and a huge custom and classic car, truck and motorcycle show. Also, new this year, live tattooing! For more info on that, contact Pumping Ink Tattoo!

It's a two - day event this year, September 2nd and 3rd. (Labor Day Weekend) Tickets are available now at Ticketmaster outlets and at, $20 a day or $35 for both days!
